Aw, shucks

Thanks to everyone for the comments about the Armoire's makeover. I'm all warm and fuzzy! I shall endeavor to make your visit worthwhile.

Thoroughly tired but happily mired in Victoriana, researching the brief but brilliant career of Aubrey Beardsley. Here's a small but high-quality image gallery.

One of my classmates, who chose Lewis Carroll as her subject, pointed me to some neat sites:

A Lewis Carroll Home Page - Wonderfully, playfully obsessive; for instance, did you know there's font of Carroll's handwriting?

Charles Dodgson (Carroll's real name) was a mathematician at Oxford; he loved the number 42. And 42 is the answer to life, the universe and everything according to Douglas Adams in his Hitchhiker's books. Everything you ever wanted to know about the mighty 42: Deep Thought.

And for the edification of the Green Llama, more than you wish you know about William Morris. And here's a lovely gallery.

What a great font that Lewis Carroll one is! A little strange, at first, but I love it! I must use is some time... :)

I love fonts - I try to stay away lest I become too obsessed.
